Linux Complaining about Windows Vista is a national past time on Internet forums these days. Windows Vista 'costs too much', 'has onerous product activation', 'requires too much hardware', etc. These complaints are often followed up by a very simple boast: 'I'm just going to switch to Linux'. But in today's landscape, how viable is that statment? Is the threat to switch to Linux an empty one, or is it entirely possible?"

If there is so many forums complaining about Vista, why use it? XP usually suits most just fine, but I've switched to Linux a long time ago. You also can buy a Macintosh. If your a gamer, sure your stuck in windows world, but for everything else...why stay? Buy an Xbox. It's a hell of alot cheaper than buying a retail version of Vista Ultimate and all the software you need to replace for it. I'm tired of this old arguement. Unless you use standerds that require an a Windows OS you can live just fine without it. In fact, you'd be better off.
